On home territory once more after the horrors of the Kiss the Girls case, detective Alex Cross faces his most harrowing challenge: a pair of ice-cold killers who are picking off Washington's rich and famous one by one with chilling professional efficiency. As the whole country awaits the identity of the next celebrity victim, only Alex Cross, with his proven ability to get into the minds of the most deranged killers, has the skills and the courage to crack the case -- but will he discover the truth before 'Jack and Jill' set their sights on Washington's ultimate celebrity target?

He first reached the top of bestseller lists around the world with Along Came a Spider, which introduced his popular detective hero Alex Cross, who also appears in Kiss the Girls, Jack and Jill, Cat and Mouse and his most recent novel, Pop Goes the Weasel.
